Thirteen elementary schools offer gifted services. Visit the "Find your gifted site" page to discover which school your child would attend after a placement specialist and Education PlanTeam deem gifted services are required. Elementary schools offering gifted services use a self-contained setting where basic skills are taught within a class of gifted peers. Additionally, students receive a compacted, differentiated curriculum of enrichment and acceleration.
All Volusia County middle schools offer gifted services in all five core academic classes: reading, language arts, social studies, math and science. As seen in the elementary schools, the course content is compacted and supplemented with enrichment and acceleration as needed. In addition middle schools offer exploratory experiences with on-gifted peers.
